Skate Video of the Day: Gold and Grey by Kyle Camarillo

I saw this video on The Berrics way back in June (I mentioned it here) and loved it, but there was no embed link to share the video. Really excited for it to finally show up on Vimeo! This is Kyle Camarillo’s entry into the REDirect film series, a collaboration between RED cameras and The Berrics, featuring 12 visionary filmmakers.

This was my favourite of the entire series, and its pretty much just two guys, Miles Silvas and Jack Curtin, ripping around San Francisco. Love the sense of speed in it. Watch “Gold and Grey” below.

Here he shares insights about his work over process footage of a gigantic 9-storey mural he painted earlier this year. Watch the video below.
